Kingman provides the perfect opportunity for manufacturing companies to serve worldwide customers effectively. Local advantages begin with excellent local infrastructure. “Receiving parts and supplies is quick and efficient via Interstate 40, one of the nation’s primary east/west corridors and U.S. Highway 93, the future Interstate 11 that will connect Mexico, the U.S. and Canada. Those same highways allow ground transportation deliveries from Kingman to reach the more than 34 million people living within a 350-mile radius of Kingman on the same day, whether in Las Vegas, Phoenix, Tucson or Southern California cities.
The primary manufacturing site is the Kingman Airport and Industrial Park, the largest and most diverse industrial park in Northern Arizona. The Park is located along the main line of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad and is serviced by the onsite, modern Kingman Municipal Airport.
The Park is a perfect fit for those businesses in manufacturing with a component of distribution to the West Coast. Companies involved in the production of high value-added, hard goods ranging the gamut of materials from composites and metals, to plastics and refractory materials. These goods may be simple one-piece components, mechanical devices, electronics, complex multiple-part apparatus, or anything in between. Manufacturing businesses see substantial benefits from their Kingman location, with convenient access to transportation, low business costs, business-friendly environmental regulations, easy access to savvy manufacturing talent, and an active year-round lifestyle. Companies such as American Woodmark, West Coast Netting, True Value, Interstate Trailers, Laron Engineering, Dillon Transpiration, and Honeywell Aerospace are all examples of manufacturers and distribution companies that call the Kingman Industrial Park Home.
The business community in the Kingman area knows how to work together to ensure business success. One example is the Kingman and Mohave Manufacturing Association, a non-profit employer association dedicated to servicing businesses in the manufacturing and manufacturing service industries by providing a forum to problem-solve business limiters and implement cost-effective workforce and business solutions.
